Windows 7: Windows 7 RTM rearm quirk

Windows 7 RTM rearm quirk

I wanted to test the rearm option to extend my Windows 7 RTM trial period.

I found all kinds of tutorials but the easiest one I found was

Open CMD with Admin rights
Go to C:\Windows\System32
Type slmgr.vbs –rearm
Restart after prompt of sucess

This didn’t work and it complained about the parameter after slmgr.vbs

So the solution was
slmgr.vbs /rearm
to check after rebooting
slmgr.vbs /dlv

Did MS changed that?

Why do I need to do that though if just typing "slmgr.vbs /rearm" did the trick.

I'm just pointing out that -rearm didn't work but /rearm worked with RTM.
